It’s been a while…

Hi folks! I’ve been on a slight hiatus from blogging. Blame studying for the GRE. Or researching grad schools. Or a major fundraiser at work. Or my own inability to plug my phone into the computer and upload photos…

Whatever the cause, it’s been a while – but I’m back now! And it’s time to play catch up. To start, I will recap some of the social highlights from our time apart. The biggest highlight was a visit from a very special friend and forever love:

I refer to the person, not the dog, Diggity.

Festivities ensued. Group brunch included mucho delicious food:

Overall, it was a fabulous spread:

Insert coffee and mimosas, and we have the ideal brunch:

After brunch, a visit to everyone’s every Carl’s favorite Minnesota apple orchard was in order.

Known for its delicious apples.cider.cheese.fudge, Fireside Orchard has it all.

The orchard itself can’t be beat with the beautiful walkways and bountiful supply of multiple apple varieties:

No trip to the orchard, however, could be complete without a stop at the small store on site and a sampling of its mouth-watering goodies.
